Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)


The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".


As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

R.I.P. Irene Sutherland

I have been informed that popular Jazz & Function singer Irene Sutherland has succumbed to cancer. I haven't had the full details save that the funeral is on Thursday although I don't know the time and place. If anyone can provide further information it would be appreciated. Sadly missed, may Irene Rest in Peace. Click here for Irene's website. Lance. See comments below for further details of funeral.

Irene's funeral is on Thursday, 17th September at 11.45 a.m. at Earsdon Parish Church, North Tyneside. After the service, as Irene requested before she died, there will be a wake at the hall next door to the church.

Brian & Irene Hume (Prelude) are providing a PA and musician friends of Irene are encouraged to sing/play - there's no set order, just turn up and play if you feel like it, or if you'd rather listen, that's fine too. The wake will be from about 2 - 3.30 p.m. If you knew Irene and her great music, please come.
